Photo-a-Day: Your Reflection

I was very inspired by my dear friend over at Ink Dots, who completed the Photo-A-Day challenge in March (check it out). Her photos were great, but even more I appreciated the truths she drew from the everyday and mundane. So, that will be the challenge for me – to see what significance I can draw from each photo moment.

I’m not a big fan of mirror-gazing. Five minutes is more than enough time for me to spend there, doing hair and makeup, unless there is a special occasion on. I know others who love to see their reflection much more than that – and our reflections are everywhere. When looking for a photo opportunity, I noticed my reflection in windows and screens, even the brass door knob on my house.

But, for me, I am more concerned with the reflection of the inner-me. On that I will spend hours – combing out the knots in my attitudes, smoothing over deep lines of discontent, putting colour on my words so they encourage others. I want to reflect Jesus in me, like the moon reflects the sun. Not, as this photo shows, a foggy resemblance, but a clear and bright picture of who He is in my life.

What image do you reflect?

“For now we see only a reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face.” [1 Corinthians 13:12 NIV]
